    I have done a couple of stained class projects.
    I was wondering if anyone has converted your own picture into a stained glass pattern.
    Or if there is information available how to do this ?

    Thank you for your help in advance
    Happy Sewing

    If you will Google "stained glass quilt patterns", there are many sites to choose from.

    from my college classes (bear with me, its been years)...

    Take the picture, and stand back away from it. Fuzz your eyes a bit until you don't see the fine detail anymore, just shapes and shadows and light. Maybe that will help a little to decide if its convert-able?

    If so, take tracing paper to lay over a print. Fuzz your eyes again, and you'll see the dark/light separations; lightly sketch those lines in. Then you can refine (add / drop lines) to your taste.

    We used this theory with some 5th graders, broke down further into squares and gave them each a square to paint, and the 10-year olds were able to paint a large mural on their school wall when they had no talent, let alone any idea on "what" they were painting :)
